I am new to Linux, so bear with me if this goes slightly astray:
- I installed SuSE 8.0 last week on my PC (dual boot w/ Windows 2K).
- The setup works fine in both OSes; I use LILO to choose the start-up OS.
- I can login to Linux with no problem as a user, but...
- I have forgotten my root password. Apparently, what I entered during the installation and what I thought I entered were two completely different things.
I have tried going in through "Rescue Installation," which seemed
to give me an option of changing the root password, but that password didn't work when I rebooted. I have tried booting using the "Linux single" and/or "Linux -s" commands, but they have not appeared to be successful in letting me find or change the password either.
Does anyone have any ideas about what I can do, or should try, to recover the lost password or
that will allow me to change it?
Thanks. Current Mood: aggravated
